Russian internet trolls hired U.S. journalists to push their news website, Facebook says

  - Some of Russia’s most infamous internet trolls have launched a news website that hired real-life journalism freelancers — including Americans — to contribute, Facebook said Tuesday.

  - The site, called Peace Data, launched this year with coverage focused largely on the environment and corporate and political corruption. 

  - Facebook learned through a tip from the FBI that people formerly associated with the Internet Research Agency (IRA), which created a number of influential Twitter and Facebook personas to inflame political tensions in the 2016 election, ran Peace Data and has taken down its known affiliated accounts.
